Hello there ~

It’s been awhile, I know! I’ve missed this little old blog of mine!  Today for the first time in about 2 months, I did not have appointments (either doctor’s or staging or decorating clients scheduled. I wrote about my crazy Real Estate Spring here and it’s still going strong!

So, it was catch up day. Returns, errands, and even a stop at Lowe’s and Home Depot to check out their plant selection. Lowe’s stuff was actually really pathetic.. All dry and not healthy looking at all.. What’s up with that? I did notice a truck being unloaded so maybe they are getting all new stuff.

So all I picked up was an Angel plant and the current issue of HGTV magazine.  Have you seen it?

Then off To Home Depot… Their selection was a little better but still nothing caught my eye.. Except these Ferns for my front yard urns. They are so huge I could barely fit 2 of them in the cart! And would you believe they were only $10.99 each?

I’ve always loved this photo of Ferns hanging from this balcony in the French Quarter in New Orleans! I’ve never been there but it’s certainly on my list of places to visit!

Yep, this blunt cut brown stuff is still last year’s Fern waiting to be dug out.  They did really well in our semi-shade front yard and lasted well into the early part of November.

 Things seem to be slowing down a little (work wise) so maybe this coming Friday, I can plant my annuals in pots and in my flower boxes. For now I’m content watching all our perennials coming up. 

Perennial wall 1

When we bought this house 7 years ago the grass went all the way to the end of the retaining wall and we carved out a bed and added tons of perennials. The first couple of years it looked a bit sparse but not anymore. One of my favorites have to be these Irises that were given to me by a neighbor when I first moved in. They seem to triple every year and this year for the first time, the hubs had to split them.

Do you plant many perennials or do you do mostly annuals? I do a combination of both but every year less and less annuals since the perennials have really taken off!
